Interesting people. Intriguing conversations. Improvised sketch comedy?!?
Each week, host Stuart Rice invites someone who is incredibly interesting to have a conversation about who they are and what they do and then helps them create an improvised sketch based on what they talked about right then-and-there!
It's fun, it's different, and it's the only show like it on the internet!

The next world war is not going to be the US vs. North Korea, or the US vs. Russia, or the US vs... wait a second, are we the problem? Well, whatever, it isn't going to be global powers, it will be technology powers. Apple vs. Google, US vs. Amazon or something ridiculous like that. Right now, the war raging in most 14 year old brains is which is better, Xbox or Playstation? Maybe it's more than just games we should be considering...

Joseph “Zombie” Zuko is the author of “The Infected” series of novels that tell of the exploits of Jim, his wife Karen, and a very large cast of characters in the days after the zombies attack. I know some of you probably read this as Joe himself was a zombie which is inaccurate, but for dramatic effect let’s just pretend that is the truth. My brains were still intact after this conversation because, according to every ex-girlfriend I have ever had, I sit on my brains because of where they are located.

business, france, language, translation
Language is tricky. Something said in one language might have the intention of sounding like something else in another language, but the subtleties of each word do not always translate from one to the other. It's a challenge that some people take on and can travel the world and experience new things. For others, it makes it really convenient that there is fast food internationally.

Sebastién and I talk about learning different languages, traveling, trying not to offend anyone on accident, making up songs, and, of course, improv! We then “get busy” and record a sketch based on language and not understanding very good. That will be a lot more funny once you listen to the episode.

Dating is fun. What isn’t funny is that first date, that is some serious business. If you decide to do something like coffee or happy hour, the object of your affection might be underwhelmed and just bolt. If you decide that dinner is the better option, then you might be forced to pay for an expensive meal with someone that you do not really enjoy spending time with. If you decide to go on an all-day hike, you have to actually go and hike and exercise is lame. Whatever you do, you might want to think twice about planning something too grandiose, or you might end up in a situation like this one…

Job interviews can be one of the most stressful events for us. We open ourselves to the possibility of looking like we are unqualified. Or maybe they ask the question that uncovers that one thing that exposes you for the creep you are. Or perhaps the question comes up about your mental well-being and as you are thinking the other person in your head takes over and answers for you in a way that makes you sound like you are completely crazy… “No it doesn’t”… Yes it does!!!

Mindset. It can change on a whim, it can dictate our mood, and it is the determining factor one whether or not our days are filled with milk and honey or a crap sandwich. It is so important to set your mind early in the morning and put it into a positive space; doing so will lead to prosperous and effective days and a smile as you roll into the evening. Mindset shows everyone around you… “Hey dad?”… What?!? Can’t you see I’m recording? What is wrong with you? You’ve ruined everything and now I have to start over! My life sucks so bad!!!!

Traveling is so much fun! Sometimes you are on your way out to see family, or sometimes you are going to an event or to see the sights… sometimes it’s just about seeing someplace new and you have no idea what it is you are expecting to see! When I travel, I know I do it with intent… to duck creditors.

Come rain, or snow, or zombie apocalypse, we trust our packages will be delivered. Sure, sometimes the package doesn’t arrive on-time, and sometimes it is mis-delivered, but we can always rely on the fact that eventually, through some method, our packages will get to where they need to go eventually. Maybe it’s time to get out of the “Cat in a Box” pet delivery service I have so heavily invested in.

Make believe. We stopped playing it for the most part as we got older, but I can remember being in my front yard, throwing a ball up in the air and swinging my Wiffle bat trying to connect and imagining myself in the clutch during the World Series. I also remember grabbing sticks and imagining they are swords and fighting dragons. As I’ve grown older, I see my kids play make believe, and I see my son doing the same sorts of things that I used to do… man, I hope I didn’t look that goofy.

Business opportunities abound all around us. See a need, fill it, and you can get rewarded handsomely for it. There are times that those business opportunities are not successful. Sometimes those opportunities are just downright stupid… but enough about Windows Phone.
